PURPOSE:

NCDOT has requested certain changes to the speed ordinances along Air Harbor Road. 

 

BACKGROUND:

The attached ordinance amends Section 16-96 of the Greensboro Code of Ordinances by changing Schedule 2A (Speed Limits on State Highway System Streets).  Each of the changes are related to Air Harbor Road which is a state maintained road and are outlined below:

 

-                     Repeal 45 mph municipal speed limit on SR 2334 (Air Harbor Road) from SR 2347 (Lake Brandt Road) eastward to Greensboro Corporate Limits, a point 0.09 miles west of SR 2348 (Bass Chapel Road).  This section of Air Harbor would revert to the municipal statutory speed limit, 35 mph.

 

-                     Establish 45 mph municipal speed limit on SR 2334 (Air Harbor Road) between SR 1001 (North Church Street) and a point 0.315 miles South and West of SR 1001 (North Church Street).  No municipal speed limit previously established.

 

All changes would become effective upon the adoption of a concurring ordinance by the North Carolina Board of Transportation and posting of signs giving notice of the authorized speed limits.

 

BUDGET IMPACT

No impact to the City budget. 

 

RECOMMENDATION / ACTION REQUESTED:

The Transportation Department recommends and requests approval of the attached ordinance amending Chapter 16 of the Greensboro Code of Ordinances with respect to Air Harbor Road traffic regulations.
